Gannon University again is pleased to serve as the host site for the annual Thanksgiving Day dinner provided by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Northwestern Pennsylvania.
The traditional Thanksgiving meal will be held in Gannon’s Beyer Hall Cafeteria, 628 Peach St., from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 22. Anyone who is alone, in need or otherwise would not celebrate the holiday is welcome. RSVPs are not necessary.
The dinner is made possible by the generous support of many volunteers and the businesses, organizations and individuals who contribute in numerous other ways.
Gannon is hosting the dinner for the fourth time.
The event, now in its 24th year overall, got its start in 1988 when Sister Teresa Marie Bohren and Peter Lyons, a local restaurant owner, worked together to provide a Thanksgiving meal to individuals in need.
